CCH Company Document will replace an outdated company Constitution by deleting all the provisions of the existing constitution except those relating to shares and share rights and replacing them with an updated constitution which includes sole member/director provisions. Documents to resign any outgoing officeholders, appoint new officeholders and transfer shares are also included.

Our service amends the existing Constitution to permit the company to become a sole member/director company. The conversion does not restrict the company from having more than one member/director.

A company which is no longer carrying on business can be voluntarily deregistered if all the members agree, the company has fewer than $1000 in assets and no liabilities.

CCH Company Documentation’s agreement is between the principal and the independent contractor, a consultant. It references agreed specifications to be attached and also allows for variations to those specifications, so the terms of the relationship can be set out clearly.  Whether a person is an independent contractor or an employee may also depend upon the actual working arrangements between the parties.

Under the CCH Company Documentation Loan Agreement, the company makes a loan to a shareholder or an associate of a shareholder of the company. The company and borrower agree that loans made are to meet the requirements of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 (section 109N of Division 7A) so that those loans are not dividends.
